Another fine day. Now, where’s the Shoks?
It’s harvest time in the veggie garden! Mom has been removing the veggies and canning, freezing, dehydrating and eating the veggies. Slowly the veggie garden is disappearing. You can see the garden is disappearing. The Brussel sprouts are slow but they taste sweeter after a frost anyhow.
The flower garden is overwhelmed with *Love Lies Bleeding* plants. Kali and I usually go into the Love Lies Bleeding to get some shade but there was so many of them that we couldn’t get under them. Disgusting mom! She says next year she’ll put the Love Lies Bleeding at the back of the garden so they don’t cover all the other plants like they’re doing this year. As you can see this garden is thick with this dang plant. The tomatoes will never turn red unless some are pulled out.
Mom sent away to Suddenly Cat for 2 fishes for us. Gosh! She sent away like 87 months ago and they arrived on Friday. I was delighted with this LED fish. It swims and lights up in water. mol I was mesmerized by this shiny and bright fish. Think I’ll call him Jaws.
While Jaws was enjoying his swim around the water bowl, I was trying to figure out how to get him out. No easy task my friends. I didn’t want to get my paw wet. I want to plunk this plastic fish down at Kali’s paws. Kali gets acne from plastic and I want to see her break out in pimples. MOL
Today the garden is slowly coming along. It’s been cold and windy here.
This picture has Shoko playing Peek a Boo in the brussel Sprouts. This was 2 weeks after everything was planted. Not much change as the brussel Sprouts, corn and cauliflower were transplants. The potatoes are coming up though.
Almost a month later this is the veggie garden.
I’ll bet you wondered what happened to us. We haven’t posted for awhile. Mom has been busy with harvesting the veggies. Well, all this warm weather has had a great effect on the veggie garden. The peas, chard and beet greens are being frozen for the winter. Beets have been frozen and 2 bags of peas. This took quite the amount of time. We had to pick the peas, shell them and divide the older peas from the tender ones. Granted mom and dad did most of this but I walked through the garden with her. Just so she didn’t mess up the veggies.
What have we been doing while mom and dad are steaming their faces off with the veggies? It has turned cool here so our pool has disappeared. No more fun with the pool. Dad cut our catnip wwwway back and hung the stalks from the ceiling of the deck. Mom will pack the leaves and buds away for our relatives at Christmas. This is still what mom and dad are doing but Kali and I helped with these chores. I sat in the middle of the catnip and yelled in perfect Niponese,”NO!! Not our nip!” Dad didn’t listen but said my voice was very forceful.
No! Down came the nip. Mom said there is another full month of summer, at least, and I’ll be chewin’ on nip again this summer. Nice tender nip too. I like the sound of that mom. Remember that Flat Einstein and Timmy are coming for a visit from Pennsylvania in August.
Kali has not been up to much. She keeps using her stairs in the bedroom. Looking all smug and happy. Today I showed her what I could do with the stairs.
Kali went into the living room and covered herself while laying on the love seat.
